Dear PowerPlant Chemistry readers:
Summer has finally arrived in the northern hemisphere – I hope the majority of the readers,
authors, and supporters of our journal will be able to take at least a few days off work and
travel to interesting places or nice beaches. Our editorial team will do the same – getting
our heads free of work and reloading our batteries, to be ready for the second half of the
Please let me use my space here to announce a conference I believe will be of great interest
to all of our readers. The International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam
(IAPWS) is organizing an international conference on film forming products and film
forming amines. The conference will take place in Lucerne, Switzerland, from April 4–6, 2017.
As a member of the steering committee, I would like to encourage all of you to attend the
conference next year. We are also looking for presentations – especially presentations on
users' experience with the application of film forming amines and film forming products in
their power plants. For further details, you can consult the announcement on page 209 or
contact me directly.
In this issue we have the pleasure of presenting to you three papers from last year's
International Water Conference (Orlando, FL, U.S.A., November 15–19, 2015). As one of the
media partners we have been given permission to present a selection of the presentations
in our journal – I hope you find the articles interesting and informative. As announced in
the last issue a summary of the Third Meeting of the EHF (Prague, Czech Republic, May 9–11,
2016) can be found on page 210 of this issue.
Speaking of conferences and events – please let us know if there is an important event
which we have failed to list on our events calendar. We'll add it in the next issue.
Last but not least I would like to encourage you to supply a contribution to our journal.
Share your experience with your colleagues in power plants all over the world – there's no
better way than through our journal.
I'm looking forward to your letters and e-mails!
